Vruddhi Patel
A down-to-earth sculptor

Vruddhi is a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Sculpture) from the M.S. University, Baroda and has been actively pursuing pottery for the last five years. She is a nature enthusiast, passionate about sustainable practices.

Vruddhi feels that pottery connects her with nature, as all the four elements of earth, water, fire, and air, are a part of the art. Even clay can teach important lessons of life, such as being adaptable in any situation, she believes. To Vruddhi, pottery is meditative and rejuvenating, and she strives for others to experience the same through her sessions. 

Currently based out of Ahmedabad, Vruddhi is a practicing Visual Artist, and takes pottery sessions at Studio Indigo.

playful papier mâché
experience the joy of creation

The joy in using our hands to mould something beautiful out of waste material is incomparable. We begin by understanding paper waste’s characteristics, before we transfer it into a 3D model. We will create papier mâché by recycling waste paper through a ‘beater’ machine. It will then be used as a raw material to make different models and art objects. Once we have explored the nature of this material, we will conceive and draw designs with dimensions, and bring them to life. Finally, when our creations are dry, we'll decorate them with oil/acrylic paints, dyes and the like.

 

Mindful Making

Working with papier mâché takes time and patience. Each layer of paper and glue adds depth and shape to the object. New layers might change the design. There is also a waiting time before it is dry enough to decorate. A bit like ourselves – we are made of layers that make us who we are and we all need time to be ready for the next step.
